“We have been on a quest to realize the full potential of California’s historic vineyards - and to create greater understanding about the joyful pleasures and true character of Zinfandel and Petite Sirah. Honoring the wisdom and labors of our forefathers, and keeping the agricultural and social traditions alive that are unique to American wine … it doesn’t get any more gratifying than that in the wine business…” - Dave Pramuk and Bob Biale, Co-Founders, Robert Biale Vineyards

My wife’s favourite wine is Zinfandel. While visiting San Fran for her 40th Birthday we visited Robert Biale Vinyards for a tasting. It was an amazing experience. Pat went the extra mile to celebrate my wife’s birthday. It was the highlight of our weekend!

Tom was very informative and entertaining. Wonderful Zinfandels and Syrahs. The best tasting and wines yet in our 3 day tour.

Tastings are by appointment, but don't let that scare you. It really is a great experience. The wines are wonderful foundational examples of the Zinfandel varietal which is what Biale is known for. But I have to say that the Petit Syrah can be a...More

This is one of the top producers for Zinfandel, but now with the addition of petit Syrah to the lineup, they are more than a one trick pony. They're tasting menus are designed to explore their main varietal. But their long history of exceptional Zinfandel...More

I would also allow 60 to 90 minutes, but they will certainly be flexible and I am sure try to accommodate your schedule. I am sure you'll have a great time as long as you enjoy great Zinfandel, Petite Sirah and other reds... More
